Probably the switch that activates the brakes on the brake pedal. to check it, find the switch under the dash above/on the brake pedal
Remove the connector and short the circuit with the ignition on/running. The brake lights should illuminate. replace if the short works.
I assume you already checked the bulbs...:)

My 88 s10 tail light works, but my blinker and break light won't work. Only on the right side of the truck


take the taillight cover off and check the bulbs carefully. if yours is the type that has the long one piece bar that holds the bulbs it's probably bad. they're about $25 at O'rielly's

How do you change the tail light unit on a 1997 Nissan Pickup?


There are two bolts on the opposite side of the tail lights. If you have a bed liner, you will have to lift it up from the back of the truck.

1998 S10 rear break lights and blinkers do not work.


If the fuses or brake light switch were bad your third brake light would not work same with the multi purpose switch. you either have a wiring problem like some broken wires or the actual light sockets are bad. it is common with gm trucks that the circuit board for the tail lights melts and does not make contact.

1997 S10 Antilock light comes on


Has there been any break work done to it lately? It could be one of the break sensors malfunctioning. or the abs needs to be reset. I have never tried this, but a friend of mine had a problem somewhat simmler to yours, he took the neg. battery cable off for about 5 minutes and hooked it back up and solved his problem. I can't say that will solve yours but its worth a shot and it don't cost anything.
